1928 Stutz Blackhawk
The new Stutz Vertical Eight arrived for the 1926 model year and evolved into the Black Hawk Speedster. In 1927, after winning many races, the Black Hawk Speedster was named the 1927 AAA Stock Car Champion. By 1928, this refined design was named America’s fastest production car after setting records at Daytona Beach. This beautiful Stutz speedster is believed to have been built for famed Stutz race car driver Frank Lockhart. Lockhart was killed during a land speed record attempt at Daytona in the Stutz Black Hawk Special. He never took delivery of this car; it was kept by the company until they folded in 1935. The wheelbase measures 131 inches. The Speedster was priced at $4,895.
